The indestructible mutant is back on home video in December!

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox will be bringing 'The Wolverine' to Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on December 3.

Directed by James Mangold ('Knight and Day,' '3:10 to Yuma,' 'Walk The Line'), 'The Wolverine' inspired by the celebrated Marvel comic book arc and featuring Hugh Jackman, in the title role takes the hero to a Japan he hasn't seen since World War II - and into a shadowy realm of ninjas, mutants, and brand new class of villains. To date the film has topped over $371 million in the worldwide box office becoming the highest grossing film in the franchise internationally.

Jackman returns as 'The Wolverine' and faces his ultimate nemesis in an action-packed, life-or-death battle that takes him to modern-day Japan. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his limits, Wolverine confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality; an epic fight that will leave him forever changed.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet Combo Pack will feature the theatrical cut of the film with 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Alternate Ending; X-Men: Days of Future Past Set Tour; The Path of the Ronin - an immersive feature following the journey of a hero without a past; and Theatrical Trailer.

The 3D Combo Pack will be the only way to get the unrated extended THE WOLVERINE Unleashed - more violent and hardcore than ever before and will also add Audio Commentary by Director James Mangold (only on the unleashed extended); and Sync with The Wolverine Second Screen App for an interactive Second Screen experience.

Suggested list price for the Theatrical Blu-ray is $39.99 while the Extended 3D Combo is $49.99.
